It was late at night, and Mount Justice was surprisingly silent, which was not only a rare treat but also a great relief.
Wally had been wanting to spend some time alone with Artemis for so long, and now they finally were sitting together with no interruptions or friends around.
"I'm glad you can't sleep tonight," He told her with a sheepish grin, and she gave him a quizzical look "I mean, I'm not happy you are restless,
but I've wanted to speak to you for a long time now."
"Well, speak then," She replied playfully, giving him a sweet smile.
Artemis was so beautiful, he thought, with her silky blonde hair and eyes so bright.
"I--- I was wondering if you'd like to go out with me. Just you and me. Like a date, you know?" He asked, speaking all too quickly.
So much so, that Artemis had to actually take a moment to comprehend what he was asking.
"A date?" She asked, mildly surprised, and he nodded immediately. He was anxious. It was cute, she decided.
Artemis grinned widely, placing her hand tenderly on his, and nodding.
"I'd love to go on a date with you, Wally," She replied, and then added with a little chuckle "If you promise to slow down!"
"I'll try my best!" He promised immediately, feeling his heart pounding a million miles an hour inside his chest.
